New in version 0.17.3 pandera provides a global config ~pandera.config.PanderaConfig.

This configuration can also be set using environment variables. For instance: ` export PANDERA_VALIDATION_ENABLED=False export PANDERA_VALIDATION_DEPTH=DATA_ONLY `

Runtime data validation incurs a performance overhead. To mitigate this, you have the option to disable validation globally. This can be achieved by setting the environment variable PANDERA_VALIDATION_ENABLE=False. When validation is disabled, any validate call will return None.
